Propylene / 1-pentene random copolymers : preparation, characterisation and commercialisation
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Most polypropylene copolymers commercially available have ethylene, and to a lesser degree t-butene as comonomers. Commercially available higher a-olefins, mostly even-numbered, are seldom used for the ...
New monomer for hydrophobic acrylic copolymers and their novel properties
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
The synthesis and characterization of a new tertiary alcohol (2-octyl-2-dodecanol) and “bushy-tailed”, hydrophobic acrylic monomer (2-octyl-dodecyl acrylate) from a 1-decene dimer (2-octyl-1-dodecene) precursor that was ...
The structure-property relationships of polyolefins
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
Polypropylene is an extremely versatile material and has a broad spectrum of applications due to the variations in properties which are possible with this material. The variations in the properties of the material are ...
